Opatija


Opatija is situated in the Gulf of Kvarner in a sheltered position at the foot of a mountain Učka, with Vojak peak at 1401 m. Opatija is located 90 km from Trieste by rail and 82 km from Pula by road. The city is geographically on the Istrian peninsula, though it is not in Istria county, but Primorje-Gorski Kotar county. It is a popular summer and winter resort, with average temperatures of 10 ° C in winter, and 25 ° C in summer. Opatija is surrounded by beautiful woods of bay laurel. The whole sea-coast to the north and south of Opatija is rocky and picturesque, and contains several smaller winter resorts.
History Opatija is included in the territory of the Liburni. In Roman times, the area was home to several Patrician villas connected to the nearby town of Castrum Laureana, the modern Lovran. In the Middle Ages the current town 'territory was divided between Veprinac (now a locality of Opatija, perhaps home to a small fishing port) and Kastav, where the fisherman village of Veprinac. The Benedictine Abbey of St. James is mentioned for the first time in 1453, and around it a small hamlet developed with the centuries.
The town's modern history begins in 1844, when Iginio Scarpa, a rich merchant from Rijeka, founded Villa Angiolina. It became a fashionable destination for the Austrian imperial family and Austrian nobility and soon more luxury hotels and villas were built, such as the Hotel Imperial (1884), the restaurant Camellia and the Police Station by the Keglević family. A new railway line, managed by the Austrian Southern Railway, was extended to Rijeka, from where it was possible to go by tram to Opatija.
The Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I used to spend here several months during winter. Many of these late 19th-century luxury hotels and villas have survived to present times. In 1920 Opatija was assigned to Italy.
Two years later, with the advent of Fascism, the Italian government started a program of forced italianization of the population, and most of the public positions were assigned to Italian-speaking citizens.
Opatija in 1947 was given to Yugoslavia, most of the Italians-speaking population, Whose percentage had increased substantially in the past years, emigrated to Italy. After the dissolution of Yugoslavia in 1991, the town became part of Croatia. Main sights The old 14th-century Benedictine abbey, Abbey St. James ("Abbey of Saint James"), from Which Dérivés the town its name (Abbey means "abbey" in Norwegian) is located in St. James Park or St James's Park. Saint James's church, built in 1506 and enlarged in 1937, now stands on the same spot.
The neo-Romanesque Church of the Annunciation with its pronounced green cupola, was designed in 1906 by architect Karl Seidl. Another sight is the Villa Angiolina, built in 1844 by Iginio Scarpa.
This villa, transformed into a hotel, gave a boost to tourism to this town. Opatija is known for the Maiden with the seagull, a statue by Zvonko Car (1956), Which is positioned on a promontory by the Juraj Sporer art pavilion. It has turned into one of symbols of Opatija. A variant of the Gilded statues of Madonna, that once stood here but was demolished by communists after the end of WWII, now stands in front of Saint James's Church.
